Governance for Improved Student Performance: SB 1566 Training

Friday, September 28, 2018

12:30–3:45 p.m.

Senate Bill (SB) 1566 introduced a new Tier 4 required training for trustees. You must have at least three hours on evaluating student academic performance and the oversight role of the board. This session fulfills this requirement.

About SB 1566 training

TASB’s SB 1566 training was informed by the XG (eXceptional Governance) Summit in 2017. Our training is research-based covering practices shown to promote improved board-superintendent relationships and improved student achievement.

Research on school governance has identified specific actions of school boards in high-performing districts, including setting and monitoring specific goals related to student performance.

This session enables trustees to embrace this essential board function with tools to:

  • Understand available student performance data and what it means for student learning
  • Set meaningful goals around student achievement
  • Make monitoring progress a central part of their board’s work

*No additional fee is required; however, advance registration is necessary, and participation is limited.
